    I want an app to change my IP address.

    Currently, I can turn on and off - super long.
    The quickest way is to turn on airplane mode on and off.

    Is there an app that does this automatically?
    It's a pain having to do manually.
    I would prefer JUST to press a button and the IP is changed.

    I think because of security reasons, not possible in current recent Android versions.
    You can't automatically turn on and off airplane mode.

    If I root my phone, will I be able to get an app that does this automatically?

    Thanks.

    mikedt 你好

    Easiest way I can think of to quickly change your IP address is to use a VPN app and service, no root required. Most usually allow you to quickly change proxys and IP addresses. Things like Express VPN, Nord VPN, Turbo VPN, and Psiphon can all do that.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I need to use my mobile network.
    So using a VPN is not an option for me.

    i'm looking for a magic 'solution'
    Where I click one button and 10 seconds later, the mobile IP has been changed (by simply turning on and off the airplane mode!)

    QUESTION: maybe i should ask if there is a way to automate turning off and on the airplane mode?

    Is Airplane mode available in your phones Quick Settings?

    I can swipe down, tap airplane mode to enable, tap again to disable, then swipe up in under 10 seconds.

    @kate
    yes it is

    i also have a little widget.
    i have android 8. they've made security changes.
    before (in android 7) you could have a widget on screen. you tap it. wait 5 seconds. it turns on. then tap again, wait 5-10 secs. and it's turned off now.

    now, i'm after a specific IP address (it's a long story why!).
    so, i am sat there turning on and off, one and off.
    that's pretty lame for me. and time consuming. i thought there MUST be a better way of changing IP.

    QUESTION: on a mobile network, you turn airplane mode on and off. you get a new IP number, let's cal it XYZ. keep doing again and again and again and you WILL get the same XYZ sooner or later again! it could take 100 tries (or much more!)...

    Given that the IP number is available... is there anyway of hooking onto a specific IP number of choice?

    thanks.
